The article discusses congestion management of deregulated power systems through optimal location of flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) devices. It uses cost free method to relieve the congestion. It proposes optimal location of unified power flow controller (UPFC) and thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) for relieving the network's congestion.
